BWW Blog: Joscelyne Tamburri - A Finale at Beauty and the Beast
by Guest Blogger: Joscelyne Tamburri - Apr 28, 2017

Well, here we are; Our last week of CCPA 2016/17. Our opening week of shows went extremely well, with a few minor "cringy" moments - as to be expected with live theatre - but in all, it was an incredibly successful week! These unexpected ended up adding humour to the show, like when Cogsworth goes to look up with the Beast and Lumiere and say "look at the Rose, it's wilting at an alarming rate" (or something like that), and the rose has disappeared, forcing the actors to improv while tech figures out how to get the rose back up there. Or when Babette's shoe flies off her foot in the tango, and our actress plays it off beautifully. It's that moment when at first you freak out, but 10 minutes later, you're dying of laughter from it. And, like I said, we have a great cast who can play it off so the audience doesn't know it's unintentional. My dad even asked me if Gaston's fall into the Orchestra pit (intentional) was supposed to happen because it seemed so real and spontaneous. (more...)
